Ancient Geeks

Who Are They?

The Ancient Geeks is a Bishop’s Stortford covers band that was inaugurated at a meeting in January 2013 with actions to buy a bass guitar and to find somewhere to rehearse.  Our objective was simply that it should be “good fun”.

A couple of weeks later we started weekly practice sessions at and managed to knock out a dodgy version of Losing My Religion. 

After a very short period of time it became clear that we really could do with a drummer and someone who could sing.  Fortunately, in March 2013, a couple of Monks vowed to join and the line up of ancient geeks was complete.

We’ve been rehearsing diligently ever since at Soul Studios (a highly-recommended venue by the way), and almost as diligently buying guitars, keyboards, and other instruments that make a noise when you hit or shake them.

We’ve gigged in a variety of pubs, gazebos, halls, cafes, and open spaces, but this is our first time at a music festival.  We hope that you like our set and that you’re enjoying the festival.  It should be “good fun”!
